ICC World Cup 2023 India’s Final Squad Announcement Live Updates: Rohit Sharma led Indian side for the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 is set to be announced today. While the provisional squad was announced earlier this month, the deadline for submitting the final squad for coveted ICC tournament is today. Any changes in the World Cup squad after today will have to be approved by the ICC. 

The 15-member squad is likely to remain more or less unchanged with one exception of injury-ridden Axar Patel. Patel is currently out of the side owing to a quadriceps strain and veteran spinner Ravichandran Ashwin had found a place in his absence during the recently concluded series against Australia. 

Reports suggest that Patel is likely to be fit before India begins their campaign against Australia at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. However, Ashwin’s performance in the recently concluded ODI series against Australia has made the job of selectors difficult.

The 37-year-old could add some much-needed variety to India’s bowling line-up, which currently lacks an off-spinner. Patel, on the other hand, is a much better batsman at number 8, as his performances over the past year or so have shown.
